The record I sampled in this track is a white label from the 1950s as I was told from the vinyl flea market where i bought it years back in Beirut, Lebanon. The record had no sleeve or sticker that can confirm the information about the exact year or what is the name of the Oud instrument player, but I really dig the music as it inspired this beat making. تحيا فلسطين

‘Oud Went Mad’ is published in my first album titled “New World Disorder” released in 2008.

أداة العود
في الأصل العربي، يعتبر العود "ملك الأدوات". ومن المفترض أن اسم العود مشتق من العربية ل "الخشب"، وجاء إلى أوروبا من خلال شمال أفريقيا. لن يكون من الخطأ القول إن العود في العرب يعتبر أقدم الآلات الموسيقية. في الواقع، هو الأداة الأكثر مركزية في التقليد الموسيقى الشرق أوسطية. ويعتقد البعض الآخر أنه هو سلف نفر فرعوننيك المصري، في حين أن البعض الآخر يقول أن هذا الصك هو الشبح من باربات الفارسية القديمة. بالإضافة إلى ذلك، يعرف العود أيضا باسم سلف العود الأوروبي.

Arabic Hip Hop and Politics


Arab hip-hop artists revive the politically conscious sub genre of hip-hop in order to normalize their Arab existence. Appropriating hip-hop for a cultural protest, Arab artists create for themselves a sub-genre of hip-hop conscious - Arab hip-hop and function as organic intellectuals of Gramsci, involved in a better representation of Arabs in the mainstream. Criticizing the power dynamics, Arab hip-hop artists are counter-hegemonic in questioning the popular identity constructions of the Arabs and reveal to the parties of the audience the media production and opportunities for progress towards social justice. Their (re) constructions identity keeps the difference while avoiding otherness. The intersection of the Arab consciousness through hip-hop and the politics of identity requires a necessary cultural protest, which, in the case of the Arabs, has been severely limited.
